Scando Design By The Book
The lifeiscarbon® has a pretyy slick run down of their favorite books on Scandinavian design. They say that too many publishers are putting ‘Scandinavian’ in the title to get sales, and there little list will help people cut through to the quality.
There's something about the book on Danish Chairs that intrigues us. LIC says:
A popular book by Noritsugu Oda, shows how the simplest things can bare the soul of a whole culture. The book's preface explains how Danish designers have worked to simplify life by building comfortable, useful, beautiful and affordable items. The chairs featured in the book are photographed on four sides like pure sculpture, which is enough to make Arne Jacobson fans swoon. Although many of the 200 designs in the book are no longer made, reproductions and descendants live on.
